Last July, Libre was saved from an Amish dog-breeding facility in Lancaster County. The 4-month-old bug-eyed pup was suffering from a host of ailments including sepsis and mange. Thanks to his rescue team, Libre is healthy, happy and hopping through fields with his family.
The Rescue of Libre
Jennifer Nields, a former humane officer, helped Dextin take the right steps to save Libre’s life. She took him to the founder of Speranza Animal Rescue in Mechanicsburg who had the right connections to bring this awesome dog back from the brink.
Speranza Animal Rescue
Speranza Animal Rescue takes in surrendered animals, dogs on the euthanasia list at kill-shelters, and animals in unimaginable cases of abuse, neglect and misfortune. Speranza takes on cases regardless of the medical costs associated and provides all of the top-notch veterinary care. They accept dogs with behavioral issues that most rescue organizations won’t consider.
Thanks to all of these caring individuals, a very special story will now help prevent and save many other animals from going through the same experience as Libre. This June, legislation passed “Libre’s Law” which updates existing statutes and increases the penalties for abusing an animal.
